Description

Dear Listener,
Cate Madigan isn't asking for trouble. Her wacky Irish family is constantly playing matchmaker for her with men who leave much to be desired. All she wants is peace and quiet and a nice place to live while she saves her money from tending bar in a lively Boston pub. Okay, so what if her roommate is a cross-dressing lounge singer named Marty Longfellow? In exchange for cheap rent, all she has to do is take care of his plants and collect his mail when he's out of town. And then…Marty disappears. At the same time, a bullmastiff named Beast shows up with instructions from Marty to take care of him. Can Cate handle this 120-pound bundle of joy who wants to devour everything in sight? Ex-cop Kellen McBride has decided to make Cate's bar his nightly hang-out. But is he just there for the beer? Or does he have an ulterior motive for getting close to Cate? When Cate comes home to a ransacked apartment, she realizes Kellen knows more than he's saying. Problem is, he's turning up the heat in her life - in more ways than one. Soon Cate finds herself in deep trouble with mysterious stalkers, a lovesick would-be boyfriend named Patrick Pugg, two friends who are looking for love, and the very sexy, possibly dangerous Kellen McBride. The south side of Boston has never been wilder....
Happy Listening!

    I don't know anyone that could not instantly fall in love with each of these characters! I loved each of them for different reasons and together they embark on an adventure of their lives with the 'star of the show' being a dog named "Beast"! This was a fun, relaxing, couldn't-put-it-down 'read! Amidst the holiday preparations and the sorrow of the tragedy in Newtown, CT, this was a welcome escape.

    The characters were all fun except for the protagonist and love interest, who were a little too sickly sweet for my tastes. I prefer Evanovich when she writes alone, I must say.

    Not bad. A good read. I liked the characters, although I would have liked more action from them. Have sent this off to a friend.

    Loved it...similar to Stephanie Plum series. Read all Janet's books and as along as Lorelei King iks performing - sure to please. Get the audio to enjoy it at its best.

    STUFF introduces Cate, a Boston native from a large and crazy Irish family. Cate has far too much going on to get involved in extracurricular activities, like men and marriage. She spends all day in school, earning her teaching degree, and all night working as a bartender in Boston's South End. Ex-cop Kellen McBride has decided to make Cate's bar his nightly haunt. He likes Cate's sassy Irish spirit and wild red hair. He also has an ulterior motive for getting close to her. Cate has sworn off all things romantic, but when she comes home to a ransacked apartment, a roommate who has flown the coop, and a sleeping bullmastiff named Beast, Cate has no choice but to ask Kellen for help. Can Kate resist the charming Kellen McBride while keeping herself out of danger? Or will Kellen turn up the heat on Cate and everything in her life?

    Mine:

    Her roommate Marty Longfellow, is a cross-dressing lounge singer who is in trouble. Little does Cate know that the trouble will follow her also. Marty disappears and when trouble come he send a dog “Beast” to help guard Cate. Beast is a big slobbering 120 bull mastiff “Puppy”.

    Enter in Kellen McBride found at the bar the Cate works out. He is actually there to try to recover stolen items from Marty. Kellen quickly falls for Cate. Cate is unsure if Kellen is the right man for her when she finds out that she is there for Marty.

    As always the love connections works and Cate and Kellen fall in love. Marty does have the stolen items, but does get off easy as he tells who was pushing him to do the jobs.

    I enjoyed this book. Not a heavy read by any means, but it has enough mystery to keep it interesting. The characters were likable and the plot entertaining. A good beach read.
